's rejecting mr. mccain's request for a special committee. >> right. >> congressman, the way congress works, he has -- he in the senate, even though you're in the house but he in the senate has his work cut out for him if the majority lead ser denying that, wouldn't you say? >> there's no work for him to do. he doesn't have anything cut out. the majority leader is the one who will make the decision. there's no way that senator mccain can override that. it seems that ryan's right. this is very, very possibly and we don't know what's in mccain's mind, but this is a fight to stay relevant on his part. when people try to stay relevant, sometimes they say the whackiest darnedest, can tank russ and wrong head of things. he's on that tangent right now. >> thank you both for your time this evening. both of you have a nice weekend. >> you, too. >> take care. >> ahead, this republican chairman in maine is apologizing after complaining about "dozens of black people" voting. but his apology actually made it worse. and say good-bye to be this friendship. chris christie speaks on mitt romney's gifts comment.
speculation. unworthy of their offices as senators. there was a time i regarded mr. mccain added gentleman. i'm sad this is not one of those moments. here we see this great center rushing off to a press event rather than going to a briefing on the facts in his zeal to vent and rant as a result of the elections. the comments that she is not so bright, not just for the, these comments beg the question when you look at her resonate, most of which you heard from our distinguished delegate eleanor holmes morton. we are asking for them to walk back those comments and joining me here -- i will stop my two- page comments at this point. i will call upon my good friend, the just-elected chair of the congressional black caucus, representative marsha fudge from the 11th district of ohio. >> thank you very much. i will be brief as well. when you lose, you get angry. when you lose you are disappointed. do not take it out of someone who did not have anything to do. blame yourself. how do you say that a person with susan rice's background is not qualified? i wonder what your qualifications are for your job.
